Storytime

Two of Skokie's youth librarians, Ms. Cathy and Ms. Mary, stand with a group of children, all engaged in storytime, some with hands raised in the air.


Storytime at the library is one of the best parts of growing up in Skokie! Join your favorite librarians and all of your friends for books, songs, fingerplays, crafts, music, games, dancing, and lots of laughs.

Ms. Gudrun and Ms. Mary know lots of bounces, tickles, and rhymes for the youngest ones, which they share in the Wednesday morning Book Babies Storytime.
